By Appointment

Culver City, CA– LeBasse Projects is pleased to announce the first large-scale solo exhibition for the Columbus, Ohio based artist Eric Fortune.  Fortune has produced a stunning array of work for his newest solo exhibition, “A Life to Leave,” that deals with characters in transition between the known and the unknown. Fortune’s subtle colors and flowing lines are brought to life through the stunning perfection of his rendering. He works and reworks his paintings until they are saturated with emotional nuances. Just like a flower can have many petals, the many emotional layers within his paintings keep unfolding, giving the works depth, richness, and an understated power that can be quite moving, for they are so lavish in detail. Fortune’s soft but riveting lighting effects are produced with a technique called ‘glazing’ – a time consuming process which allows Fortune to infuse his artistry in the most subtle details of each painting. It also means that each painting takes him months to produce. This rarely allows for a display of this many paintings at one time.  ‘A Life to Leave’ will be the first time Fortune has created such a large body of work, in what is his most compelling exhibition to date.
